Are you currently unemployed. Did your business shut down because of the taxing authorities or other creditors? Are you left with nothing but a large trust fund tax bill? If so, think currently non-collectible.
Our client was shut down by the utility company for unpaid electric bills and he could not afford to continue to keep his business in operations. However, he was left with a tax bill of $37,000. He is a relatively young guy and wanted some time to think, get back on his feet, and get a job prior to seeking a resolution of his tax debt. The best strategy for him at this time is currently non-collectible. We sent in the financial statement form to the IRS (Form 433-F) and included copies of bills, unpaid bills, late bills and shut off notices. Clearly the client was barely making it. Therefore we asked the IRS to put the case into non-collectible.
The IRS granted our request and the client will not be responsible for paying on his tax bill for a period of at least 1 year. Sometimes our client's simply need time to figure out what will work best for them. In this case, CNC was the perfect strategy and when our client begins working again, we will investigate other strategies for him to pursue.
